    Greater blessing for ISU, Chizik to Auburn or McDermott to Creighton

    Both days are huge days in ISU history. I would say McDermott leaving is bigger, this hole is only getting deeper and deeper. I don't know if Chizik would have worked out, but he had the star power that McDermott has never had, but his coordinators were sub-par compared to what we have now. What does everyone think?

    Disagree...Chizik leaving was a much greater blessing.

    Itll depend how things play out.

    Chizik definitely left us in a better situation than GMac will though.

    Chizik to Auburn IMO. The timing of McDermott leaving couldn't really be worse

    As we sit right now Chiz to AU. Big Picture, I think McD to CU could be bigger.

    Mac leaving is bigger.
    There were far more people calling for his head during the last year or two, than people wanting Chizik fired.


    When Prepared, Fear No One.

    Why? He was only here two years, the defense was horid, but the offense set records under a sophmore QB.

    Its McDermott. Chizik could have been sucessful here, that was yet to be determined. McDermott success rate has been determined.

    I say Chizik leaving was much better for us. Only time will tell for sure.

    Gmac IMO.

    I got nothing against Greg. But it wasn't going to work out and he had the time. Chiz was only two years in, and in a sport that requires much more. There was still plenty of opportunity to get it done. Even with his shortfalls, he left us in a better spot than were we started.

    I don't think we're anywhere close to that point in MBB.

    Because football pays the bills and it was obvious to me that Chizik wasn't going to do anything here.

    How was it obvious? We got to a bowl game last year off of Chizik's recruits...

    Harder to build a football team with 22 guys apposed to 5 in basketball, IMO.

    That is a sad statement for GMAC as Chizik was a walking disaster as well. Luckily there were 2 universities that were dumb enough to take them off of our hands.
